Holding your wedding breakfast at The Lovat

In the Highlands, Scottish weddings celebrate marriage by giving breakfast to the bride, groom and guests during the wedding reception, following the wedding ceremony. However, it is not normally a morning breakfast meal! The name “wedding breakfast” is said to have derived from the tradition by which the bride and groom would fast before the wedding, then celebrate with food after the ceremony.

Contact the wedding planning team at The Lovat to find out how we can cater for your perfect wedding breakfast – call us on 01456 490000 today or email

The Scottish Highlands offers romance, mystery and ethereal grandeur – all elements that make a great Scottish wedding. We can offer you all this and more when you hold your wedding at The Lovat hotel in Fort Augustus, at the southern tip of Loch Ness.

Hold a civil ceremony at our hotel, or have your wedding reception – and the all important wedding breakfast! – at The Lovat after you’ve been married at a nearby location. Whatever your requirements, the Lovat is a fabulous Scottish venue that has different public rooms to suit your needs.

We can adapt accordingly to your guest numbers and breakfast budget. The breakfast menu can come in the form of canapés, a finger/fork buffet or a seated meal – whatever suits you as a couple.

The Lovat prides itself on easing those nerves that are associated with weddings as we are confident in our quality and service delivery. Our knowledge and understanding allows you to relax and enjoy your perfect wedding day in the Scottish Highlands.

Call our hotel on 01456 490000 to speak to us about holding your wedding breakfast at our lovely hotel.
